We are looking for a qualified On-Screen Journalist who will be able to deliver engaging, hard-hitting and compelling journalism to our diverse audience across the ITV Channel region.
As one of our team based at our Jersey Waterfront studios, you could be covering anything from the lead story to the ‘And Finally’ for our 6pm programme.
You will have a solid background as a broadcast journalist and a proven track record producing creative, original stories; consistently delivering reports to the highest possible production values. We are a multi-platform operation so you will be enthusiastic about developing an online presence through our web sites and via social media interaction.

The successful candidate will be asked to undergo a pre-employment medical check to ensure their fitness to perform the job and to identify any pre-existing medical conditions that may be exacerbated by carrying a reasonably heavy camera and kit.
We will expect you to be willing and enthusiastic about developing your camera and editing skills to compliment the newsgathering and story-telling skills you already possess.
If you have the skills and experience to help us continue to offer award winning news to our audience, we’d love to hear from you.
